Alan Rogers Review

On sandy terrain under a canopy of pine trees and close to a dune-lined beach, Gala has around 450 pitches with space for about 200 touring units and is well cared for, with plants and shrubs to welcome you. Chalets occupy the area closest to the road and seasonal units the next; beyond that are some level marked pitches and a large pine-clad area on sloping ground nearest the sea where you choose your own spot between the trees. A short walk from there takes you to a private beach, though you should swim with caution when it is windy. Electrical connections (6/10A) are available throughout. Located in the midst of the Mata de Lavos, the campsite is 400 m from a magnificent beach. It has three shower blocks as well as a swimming pool and bungalows. The wide beach of Figueira da Foz and the city of Coimbra, packed with monuments and history are both worth a visit. The Serra da Boa Viagem is a nature reserve and paradise for nature-lovers. Conímbriga also offers you the chance to visit the beautiful 1st century AD Roman remains.

To the north, via an impressive bridge crossing the River Mondego, is the important deep-sea fishing port and bustling resort of Figueira da Foz. Up-river from there lies Coimbra, Portugal’s oldest university town which offers plenty of good shopping, much interesting architecture and, apparently, a vibrant night life. The nearby Roman remains at Conímbriga are worth visiting. Further afield is Fátima, a place of pilgrimage with a celebrated shrine. Beyond Figueira to the north are stretches of wild beaches, areas of woodland, part of the national forest, and the fascinating town of Aveiro, known as Portugal’s Venice.
